Today is a special Secret Recipe Club Tribute to Daniel from the Haggis and the Herring. I personally never met Daniel but after reading several of his posts, I felt like I got to know him a little better. He had a love for family, friends and cooking. Daniel had suddenly passed away and it is such a horrible loss for his family, friends and us. I’ll be honest, I’m not good with emotional stuff, I just know how I feel and I’m not very good at expressing my feelings, so with that said I’m going to share with you the link from Daniel’s Eulogy that his wife wrote for him.
As part of our tribute to Daniel and his most creative and wonderful recipes, we at Secret Recipe Club will be making one of his recipes to share with you.
After going through all of his recipes, I found one that I feel in love with. It’s healthy, easy to make and makes for a wonderful snack!
This is Daniels Yogurt Cereal Bars. He made these for his son Jeremy so he could have a pretty healthy snack! Daniel first made them with oats, but his son stuck his tongue to them when they fell apart. So Daniel, the creative culinary genius that he is, remade the bars using cornflakes! His son loved them and so do I! Whats even better, is that I love making bars, and normally I use oats, and my Husband, like Jeremy, sticks his tongue at them! Now that I will be re-creating this recipe a million times by using different fillings, I know my Husband will love them and I feel good knowing I am giving him something healthy!!
These Yogurt Bars were so easy to make and the smell of them baking with the cinnamon, oh my gosh! I couldn’t wait for them to cool so I could bite into one!! The cornflakes are amazing in this recipe and gives the bar a slight crunch. The bars aren’t too sweet but sweet enough! I think their perfect and I think you will too!!
I was also surprised on how well the yogurt stands up to being baked. It’s almost a cheesecake consistency. You know I love cheesecake. My imagination is going wild thinking of all the things I can do with these bars! I hope Daniel doesn’t mind, but I know I will be using his recipe for a long time. I am just loving this!!!
